    Oh I missed the link in the paragraph. I gotta be honest. Acetylene scares me as does the brake clean. One day I may try the acetylene because I like the torch handle keeping me away from the igniting the flame.

    Not sure I'd be lighting brake cleaner as it's got bad chemicals when lit that can make you sick, or worse. I love brake clean and use it all the time, but never mixed with heat or flames.

    I was

    apprehensive the first time I tried it Mario. I was trying to get the beads of some M/T slicks to seat and couldn't. I got out my torch and not knowing how much to use started with some very short shots into the tire. I think it was about the 4th or 5th try that I got it right and just like in the video it popped and beaded, very slick; no pun intended.

    Pretty cool Steve. I have my old torch but it’s been sitting for about 16 years. I bet the hoses are shot.

    Has anyone ever used propane instead of acetylene?

    Check out this one. I think he used starting fluid. At least he made a fuse to get away from the tire.

    As someone who almost lit himself on fire using gas on a fire, I will not even try that. I would kill myself. LOL

    Hey Dave

    I believe that's where the phrase "like throwing gas on a fire" came from.
